Very Good; But Not Great

When we walked into Buon Appetito, we thought, "this place is perfect...comfortable, friendly, etc. Our hostess gave us the choice of several booths and brought water immediately. It took longer than we expected for our server to come to the table. But, she took our drink and appetizer order and... read more

I had a very enjoyable dinner at Buon Appetito with my family. There was a nice selection of meals and the service was very good. There were quite a few locals dining there, which is always a good sign. I recommend the restaurant.

Last Saturday my husband gave me a retirement party at Buon Appetito in N. Stonington. Mirela, the owner personally saw to all of the food and the spread she provided was just amazing. The hand made pizza and pasta, the roasted vegetables, the fish, beef and chicken....the list was long and incredible tasty. I had 50 guests and they could... More

When we come with family we get a chance to try other offerings and everyone is satisfied yet we stand fast. Lisa, the sorvegliante on call has roots in Bologna and makes sure... More

We sat on the patio with our daughter and her boyfriend and enjoyed some live music as we were eating. We had the antipasto salad and pizzas. The food was very good, but my husband and I agreed that we've had better. Of course, we didn't try the pasta, but we heard it was wonderful. The prices were a little... More

We stopped at this restaurant while driving through the area. It is a short drive from the interstate but sooooo worth the drive. My family was travelling and found this stop on a local website and decided to give it a try. The atmosphere.....the people...the food! We had an appetizer..dinner and stayed for dessert because it was so good. I... More
